The Obedience of the Rechabites

1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of 1Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah: 2 "Go to the house of the 2Rechabites and speak with them and bring them to the house of the LORD, into one of 3the chambers; then offer them wine to drink." 3 So I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, son of Habazziniah and his brothers and all his sons and the whole house of the Rechabites. 4 I brought them to the house of the LORD into 4the chamber of the sons of Hanan the son of Igdaliah, 5the man of God, which was near 6the chamber of the officials, above 7the chamber of 8Maaseiah the son of Shallum, 9keeper of the threshold. 5 Then I set before the Rechabites pitchers full of wine, and cups, and I said to them, "Drink wine." 6 But they answered, "We will drink no wine, for 10Jonadab the son of Rechab, our father, commanded us, 'You shall not drink wine, neither you nor your sons forever.
